    I'd love to be a surgeon but I don't think my A-Levels will be good enough.
    What other careers are out there in the medical field such as Pharmacy, Optometry etc?
    Looking for something with good pay too...

    What are your A levels? There are lots of ways into medicine.

    There are TONNES of jobs. What are you interested in? You could be an ODP and work in theatres assisting if surgery is your dream!

    Don't put yourself down before you've even got your A Levels. If you can get AAA+, there's no reason why you couldn't do medicine itself with enough hard work (although you may want to consider whether it's worth going into it given all that's been happening).

    I would strongly advise against pharmacy. There's currently a big oversupply of pharmacy graduates because of years of uncapped student numbers and the employment situation is not looking very good.

    Thank you and I'll stay away from Pharmacy, thanks! :P
